    Blazers have a chance to get right after losing four in a row

    Looking back on the Blazers four-game losing streak. And then ahead to the final three games before the All-Star break. It's not time to freak out but it's for sure time to get right. Plus Anfernee Simons is in the Dunk Contest and Robert Covington is in the skills competition.

    At the end of a winning streak, Blazers face familiar questions

    At the end of a winning streak, Blazers face familiar questions

    The Portland Trail Blazers lost for the first time in seven games and it exposed some of their obvious flaws. Can this team defend enough to win important games? Can Damian Lillard and the coaching staff ever solve a trapping defense? Do all dogs really go to heaven? Yep, all the familiar stuff.
    Also the numbers behind Dame’s post All-Star snub surges. Is this chip on his shoulder improvement fact or fiction? Let’s take a look at the stats

The best Blazer podcast

Even though I don’t agree with Mike politically when he occasionally rants, his Blazer podcast is easily the best. And the Blazers are what bring us together! It is informative, succinct and interesting. It often provides a fresh perspective on things Blazer! Keep up the great work - and thank you!!!!!

Mailbags are killing me

I'm surprised and disappointed in the number of dumb fans that keep writing to Mike, and I get that he needs to answer these questions to keep subscribers, but it kills me to have to listen to Mike give a take on these stupid trade ideas. People, this isn't fantasy sports. Stop it. And Mike, filter your questions. Unsubscribed.
